What can I say? I LOVE the Algarve, which gives us warm, sunny, and gentle weather most of the year (including October!).
Speaking of October, it's past the crazy summer tourist season, so prices for everything are very accessible (including this retreat!). And the length of our time together (6 nights) is long enough for powerful changes yet convenient enough to accommodate work schedules, parent stuff, and other obligations.
Traveling to our retreat villa is simple and straightforward – with good airports, trains and highways while coddling us in the lap of this country's exceptional beauty and vibrant culture.
The Portuguese have a charming way about them, with a kindness and spirit of generosity that is irresistible. The country is one of the safest in the world and here in the south, English is widely spoken and makes it easy to communicate.
